Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl praised his side's resilience as they made it five games unbeaten with a 1-1 draw against Burnley.
A stoppage-time penalty by Ashley Barnes denied Saints all three points, but the draw ensured they remain two points clear of the relegation zone following Cardiff's win over Bournemouth.
Hasenhuttl was happy with his side's performance despite the late equaliser.
"We are unbeaten in five games, that's what's more important to me," Hasenhuttl said.
"This point will help us in the end. I see the positive things and we showed again we are hard to beat in away games."
Nathan Redmond scored a brilliant goal to give Saints the lead, striking from outside the box after a mazy run through central midfield.
Hasenhuttl praised the midfielder's "fantastic performance", and hoped that his side could make up the lost points next week when they host Cardiff City, who sit below them in the table.
"It's a long way to the end, and next week we have Cardiff at home, so that'll be the next important game for us," he added.
"Maybe the two points we lost today in the last minute we can take back in this game."
